Barry Whistler Gallery present Linnea Glatt: "Plot Line" opening reception
Barry Whistler Gallery will present "Plot Line," an exhibition of works by gallery artist Linnea Glatt. This exhibition, featuring new works on paper, will mark Glatt’s fifth solo exhibition with the gallery. A catalog that features an essay by Chelsea Pierce, Curatorial Assistant at The Dallas Museum of Art, will accompany the exhibition. An excerpt from that essay follows.
“Plot Line” features a continuation of Linnea Glatt’s diverse fabric drawings and handmade books, contemplating elements of seriality, rhythm, and contrasts. Glatt unifies surface and substrate by layering textiles, removing threads to expose structural lines, and stitching thread into fabric or mulberry paper. When done in series, she explores progressions, increasing sizes and gradations to convey visual evolutions. In every permutation, we see the labor of time spent. Time seems to be referenced frequently. From an outside perspective, one sees the ebb and flow of cycles, or contrasts such as day and night. For Linnea, the work is more referential to her life, an appraisal of the individual points in time that together make a line, and her observation of the cyclical nature of life that often evokes a circle.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through May 31.
